This year, the CWI Lectures will be held on Thursday 23 November. The theme will be Machine Learning and the afternoon will be organized by CWI's newly established Machine Learning group. 

Speakers will include two of the world's leading machine learning researchers: Suchi Saria and Neil Lawrence:

- Suchi Saria is professor at Johns Hopkins University. Even though she only obtained her Ph.D. (at Stanford) in 2011, her work has already attracted considerable attraction and honours. For example, in 2016 she has been selected as 'one of Popular Science's Brilliant 10'. She has also been named one of AI's "ten to watch" by IEEE in 2014. She is, among many other things, known for successful applications of state-of-the-art theory in machine learning and statistics within the health domain. 
- Neil Lawrence is founder and director of Amazon Research Cambridge and professor at Sheffield University. He is a regular contributor to The Guardian where he writes about impact of machine learning technology to society.   He is former program chair of NIPS, the world's main machine learning conference, and is founder of Data Science Africa.

Registration for the Lectures will open in August.
